CLA Task Force on Internationalization

In the Fall, I developed a task force to focus on the important topic of Internationalization from a CLA perspective. Their charge is below, along with links to the report and an anonymous online survey to gather feedback from the CLA community. Please review the report and then let me know your thoughts via the survey.

CLA Task Force on Internationalization Charge:

CLA has long played a central role in the international activities of the University of Minnesota.  Our faculty and students are engaged around the globe and CLA students represent the largest group studying abroad. CLA faculty collaborate with colleagues in more than 70 countries. We are the home of the University’s language programs and the place where students take courses on diverse cultures and social systems as well as the transnational processes that link them. In addition to the work underway in CLA departments, we are the home to more than a dozen centers and programs that define their missions around international projects.
